And to have a little fun, looks like the Windows Phone OS team had themselves a little parade to celebrate that whole "RTM" milestone last week, to which we also give a salute.

While it's too early to tell if Microsoft will regain market share, we think that Windows Phone 7 certainly goes the distance in amping up the competition. For a such a turnaround in 20 months, Microsoft seems to have their mojo back and we're pretty psyched.

(Oh and yes, the joke is that these photos were taken with a Sprint HTC EVO)

Check out the rest of the gallery over at Flickr for some cheesy fun.
